Alina is the consummate professional, going above and beyond to satisfy requests no matter how far afield they may be from normal tour expectations. She was extremely gracious and adaptable to our changing situation due to a flight delay. Her English is perfect and she is an absolute delight to work with. I highly recommend spending the day with Alina if your travels take you to Bucharest.

Alina is an outstanding tour guide. She is not Jewish but has taken it upon herself to learn about Romanian Jewry, the Holocaust, customs, traditions and history of the Jews. She is intelligent, well-educated, speaks a perfect English, bubbly, funny and charming...everything a tour guide should be! She responds immediately to questions or concerns. I highly recommend Alina, especially for this tour.

Alina was terrific. Our walk with her was one of the highlights of our trip. She was very knowledgeable about Bucharest and showed us neighborhoods, street art, shops and cafes that we would not have found on our own. Her sociology background helped us understand the city better. She was professional and passionate about Bucharest. She has a great rapport with people and was able to get us in to a rehearsal at the Athenian theatre that was closed to the public. I highly recommend Alina as a tour guide!

Four of us spent a wonderful day in Bucharest with Alina. Her personality, knowledge, excellent organisation and desire to meet our every need made her one of the best tour guides we have had over many years, in many countries. She was most helpful before our arrival in the selection of a hotel, and she worked hard at getting us tickets for a concert at the Atheneum. Alena is a wonderful person and an superb ambassador for her country.

Upon arrival, Alina met us at the hotel with a map review the plan for our tour and with additional sites and restaurants that she thought might interest us circled. On tour, she proved to be extremely knowledgeable and balanced in her presentation of the struggles that Romanians went through transitioning from communism. Very informative and very enjoyable. As a special treat, we had the pleasure of sitting in the back of a rehearsal for at the Romanian Athenaeum.

Alina delivered on exactly what she promised. I got a true sense of the culture, away from the main tourist attractions. We walked through several charming neighborhoods that few tourists ever get to see. She also provided many interesting historical and cultural details about the larger tourist destinations that even the guides didn't share. She absolutely made the experience more enjoyable than I ever expected.

Alina was the best guide we had on this vacation. She was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. Excellent communications skills. She was also very flexible in developing a custom tour especially since it rain the whole day. She kept us dry and was able to see everything that we wanted to see. She also escorted us through the lines at the Parliament tour which helped a lot. In addition she did not give us her personal view on the political climate but just the facts. Highly recommend using Alina.

A delightful and friendly guide with a mass of history and facts about the old heart of Bucharest. A most enjoyable tour. She arrived on time at the agreed meeting point and quickly then joined us at our hotel as I realised that our tour company had changed the hotel! We were then taken around the sites by foot and, when longer distances were involved, by taxi. I repeat, we have only praise for the service she gave us.

We had an exceptional tour with Alina. She is extremely knowledgeable about Romanian history and the way she complemented the sights and her explanations with photographs on her iPad added a great element. E.g., she used maps of Romania at different stages to illustrate how the country unified. At key sites in the Romanian revolution, she used photographs of the crowds at the time to make those events real. Alina speaks perfect English and is a true pleasure to spend time with. She is a fantastic guide!

Alina's tour was everything it promised to be and more. Alina herself was very prompt, friendly and had an excellent sense of humour. She took us to some excellent "off the beaten track" places that we wouldn't have realised existed (hidden cafes, courtyards and various sights) as well as taking us in to some places we wouldn't have known you could enter (such as the Opera hall). I highly recommend her for any tour as she was superb.

Alina was our most excellent tour guide. We took a full day tour to Constanta. Alina helped with all the train arrangements, guided us to the train station and spent the entire day with us. She is extremely personable and knowledgeable about Romania, We will definitely request her next time we have an opportunity to visit Romania...there is so much to see and do! She is probably the best tour guide we have ever used and we have used many over the years.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kindest words! Looking forward to your next visit to Romania!

Alina could make a tour of any place in Romania alive and interesting! While Constanta was not one of the top ports we visited on the Black Sea, touring with Alina made it remarkably interesting, lively, and memorable - especially the amazing mosaic historical site. Alina's facility with English is superb and her description of historical information delightful. All this added to her sense of humor and charming wit made her a favorite of our guides.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Elizabeth, for the kindest words! I am looking forward to your future visit to Bucharest!

We had a wonderful time on our tour with Alina. Many people on our cruise considered Costanta a waste of time to visit. But because we had a great guide with a sense of humor and knowledge of the town, we left feeling good about the town. We've even considered taking a trip to Bucharest just to have her show us around!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words and for a lovely afternoon in Constanta! I'm looking forward to show you around Bucharest!

This tour provided a very comprehensive, varied and thoughtfully designed introduction to the centre of this city. I was offered plenty of detailed information regarding the architecture and history of the route and good advice on Romanian cuisine at lunch time. The tour was excellent value for money and confidently delivered in a friendly, tireless and flexible manner. Advice on what to do with my other days was very appropriate. Her enthusiasm for this subject is evident and infectious.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ibrahim, for a great time! It was one of the best rainy days ever in Bucharest!
